Developing the new installation work for the Newtown Art Seat. I'm really interested to uncover more Sydney poster makers, posters and stories. The work has been developed using a combination of letterpress and Letraset processes. The mini poster will be published at the completion of the installation period - stay tuned! If you have pulled your punches in the Inner West, Sydney - I want to hear from you - please get in touch!  

The Newtown Art Seat presents innovative contemporary art to the local community and provides artists and community groups with the opportunity to exhibit in public space for the purpose of experimental, non-commercial artistic outcomes.  


Since signing the agreement with the Australian Human Rights Commission to support the Racism It Stops with Me campaign, Hobsons Bay City Council implemented a range of organisational and community actions demonstrating Council’s leadership in combating racism and promoting the value of cultural diversity.

One of the biggest highlights over the last 12 months has been the Behind This Smile community art project which gave 12 local residents from diverse backgrounds from Hobsons Bay an opportunity to share their stories with the community.

“We are proud to be recognised as a finalist and would like to thank the local artist Wendy Murray and all the 12 individuals residents involved for their personal contributions.” - Mayor of Hobsons Bay Cr Peter Hemphill
